Celebrity blogger B. Scott posted the below Vanity Fair photo to Facebook, and it immediately began to rack up negative comments. Why are people so upset about the photo? The photo shows Jordan with his had on the back of Coogler’s head.
Many of the negative comments suggested the photo appeared to be sexual, and thought Vanity Fair was trying to push an agenda. Others quickly pointed out that it is simply just an expression of brotherly love. One Facebook user commented, “I feel sorry for some people that sexualize everything. It shows you are insecure about your own sexualities. All I see is two black men embracing one another like brothers.”
